So yes today I attended a yard sale in Paris 20th, not that large BUT a real yard sale without any pros (professional antique dealers). just real people and family selling off what is no longer needed. And let me tell you, I found so many nice things!!!

Bought books and clothes for the kids.

Lots and lots and more Playmobil. I mean a lot. Really. Let's say many pounds of them in a large bag that includes lots and lots of vintage ones as well as many small sets such as the Romans, some circus ones, Egyptians and so much more! Oh and a nice sea dragon for the kid's bath (they'll have a surprise Sunday).

Also found a Biche de Bere necklace (always a good buy, I didn't even haggle the price). A lovely enameled lunch box in a nice unusual color. I bought a large smurf figure (a McDonald's premium from 2002) and some mint in pack VHSC cassettes.

After that, I met my husband at a near by metro station and we walk down Saint-Denis toward the Seine and Saint-Michel. We are enjoying 4 days without our kids (that were just too happy to go with their grandma).

Target: The Great Canadian Pub in Paris for beers and club sandwich (burger for hubby). The Moosehead was delicious (been a long while I didn't drink a Canadian beer) but not cheap (but hey I was still on my birthday extended celebrations). Service was great, typical friendly Canadian staff. And hockey on TV (sadly not the Habs)
